The best jewelry for men is a classic wristwatch. This is the most elegant accessory for men. This is 2020 and if you still do not wear a wristwatch, then you are making a huge mistake. The good thing is that most men wear wristwatches, but the bad thing is that they also make many mistakes and they need to learn some basic wristwatch tips.
Which watch should be worn on which occasion, is still an unsolved question for a lot of people.
It does not matter how expensive or luxurious watches you buy if you do not know how to wear a watch perfectly, you can not become an elegant man.
Therefore today I am going to tell you to top 05 basic wristwatch tips that you have to follow.
Basic Wristwatch Tips For Men
1. Perfect Fit –
Balance/fit is crucial for everything, whether you talk about clothing, shoes, or watches.
If you wear a watch, which is loose on your wrist, then definitely you will face a lot of difficulties and you will also look styleless as a person seems to be struggling with his watch.
Similar problems have to be faced even when one wears a wristwatch, which is too tight for his wrist.
So while buying watches, make sure that the wristwatch is neither too tight nor too loose.
Yes, if it is a little bit tighter, then you can adjust it later but if it is extremely tight then it can also resist the blood circulation, which can be very dangerous and harmful.
One thing should always be remembered that your wristwatch should not be loose because it seems worse than the extent.
2. The Strap Selection –
I know that most people often ignore this but the right strap selection can change your whole appearance and make you more elegant and attractive.
Which wristwatch should be worn with which outfit?
Almost all of us have faced this unsolved question.
Well, at one time I have also faced this question, I did a lot of research and observation regarding it and ultimately, I got some effective rules of strap selection. Which I have given below –
(a) Metal strap watches are nicely compatible with casual and semi-formal outfits, so you can wear them for casual and semi-formal occasions.
(b) If there is a rubber strap watch in your wardrobe, you can easily rock all the casual occasions with the elegant rubber watch.
Note: The more rubber is hard, the more athletic the watch will be.
(c) If you are looking for a classic formal wristwatch then you should go for a leather strap watch.
(d) If we talk about the canvas strap then the watch should be worn on some casual occasions like hangout, date, college, etc.
Well, If your budget doesn’t allow you to buy different watches for different occasions, then I recommend you to buy an elegant or simple leather strap watch because you can wear a leather strap watch, where ever you want.
3. Where To Wear –
On which hand a man should wear a wristwatch?
I’ve heard this many times that men should always wear a wristwatch in their left hand and women should always wear a wristwatch in their right hand but this is just a misconception.
There is no such rule for hand selection.
You can wear a wristwatch according to your comfort.
Still, If you ask for my advice then I must recommend preferring your non-dominant hand because when you wear a wristwatch in your working/dominant hand, all the things become slightly tough for you.
Suppose you are right-handed and wear a watch in the wrist of your right hand then you can’t write, eat, type, grab, catch things comfortably.
So the best option for wearing a wristwatch is your non-dominant hand.
According to this, If you are Lefty then you should wear a watch on your right hand and if you are a righty then you should wear the watch on your left hand.
4. Face –
The overall dial size is known as the face of the watch.
You should select the face according to your wrist.
If you wear a wristwatch, which has a large face, then you are making a huge fashion mistake.
It depends on the width and size of your wrist.
If you are a guy who has slim/small wrists then you should strictly avoid large face watches.
Ideally, you should not wear a very heavy and large face wristwatch but If you wear a very small face wristwatch, it will look like a feminine watch.
The ideal face size of a wristwatch for men should be somewhere around 36-43 mm.
Remember, always select the face size according to your wrist because a stylish man always takes care of all the minor points.
5. Keep It Simple –
Remember those G-shock watches?
Which were designed and made for athletes and soldiers but when you wear a G-shock watch with casual or formal outfits, it doesn’t look good at all.
Well, there are so many wristwatches like the pilot watch, diver watch, skeleton watch, field watch, sports watch, and many more but the best option for a classic man is a simple dress watch.
Don’t invest in fancy, colorful and childish watches.
Always go for a simple, elegant, and classic dress/underdress watch.
You can wear a dress watch everywhere because it is a universal accessory but when you prefer something like G-shock, you can’t wear it everywhere.
Also, 2020-21 is the era of vintage watches and this is the perfect time to buy a vintage watch.
In case, if you can’t buy a classic vintage watch because they’re slightly on the expensive side then prefer buying a watch, which has a minimal elegant dial.
The simple face looks versatile and when you will wear an elegant wristwatch you will find yourself more attractive and stylish.
Well, I am a big fan of analog watches, I don’t prefer digital watches much because analog watches are versatile and classic.
An analog watch, which has a basic dial and leather straps.
When it comes to color selection, black and brown both are the best colors for a formal leather strap wristwatch.
If we talk about the metal strap, golden and silver, are the most popular and versatile metallic straps. Although nowadays black metal strap watch is also quite trendy.
If your skin undertone is cool then you should go for the silver metal strap and if your skin undertone is warm then the golden metal strap watch is the most compatible for your skin tone.
I believe that vintage watches are more attractive than fancy and modern wristwatches.
